Pours out of the can a clear golden color with a thick and lively head. Aroma is light of corn and hops. Well I’ll give them one thing, it sure does finish dry. Pretty clean little beer all in all. Taste is crisp and heavily carbonated. Not too bad I guess.

Served at Azuma in Houston. Bottle poured into a tall flute glass. Big white head, golden in color with no apparent smell. Taste rice, corn, with a dry aftertaste. It is what it is.

I have enjoyed this beer on a number of occasions however the truth of it is it is largely uninspiring.

They’re really not kidding when they say super-dry. Not too much finesse to this beer, it relies on its brute force to push a dry maltiness to your tongue, adequate carbonation, and not much else. Drinkable, but not quenching.

Bottle. Pale golden colored. A small white head. Water all the way! Some dryness in the non existent flavor.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2008 Pleasantly surprised by this one... Poured a very clear yellow/gold color with a medium foamy, white head. Aroma was almost non-existent, but dry and of a little hops. Flavor was surprisingly complex for such a light beer... dry, floral, citrus, yeast, and cereal were present. Went well with the hibachi steak I had. 16 oz. bottle.

BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2008
12oz Can - The Liquor Collection - Honolulu, Hawaii
2008 – Great Hawaii Beer Run
Aroma – Light lager aroma with some light hops bitterness.
Appearance – Light golden color, nice head and clear.
Flavor – A light pale flavor. Very little to no hops tasted.
Palate – Had nice Mouthfeel, easy to drink and a good beer for a super hot day.
Overall – A decent beer could have been much worse but it was a good Pale lager.

12oz bottle poured in an English pint. ASD pours yellow and clear with a fairly substantial creamy white head. It looks like a typical macro brewery output. The aroma is, again, typical macro. There’s the smell of treated water and corn along with tin. The body is thin and carbonated but still manages to have a touch of oil. There isn’t much of an after taste but some bitter vegetable residue does remain. The flavor better than the typical AB product but certainly nothing to get excited about. The hops are present but they don’t really meld well with the corn taste.

I really like this. It was just what I wanted. Not much aroma to speak of and the appearance was very basic american macro. However, the extremely crisp effervescent taste was just what the doctor ordered. I got this at Yamato, a japanese steakhouse, and it did the trick. Not filling, very crisp and clean tasting, it left room for dinner.

as (180) - Belgrade / Hamburg, - JAN 8, 2008
Can.Very pale yellow color, tiny head.Apart from some grainy and the usual chemical aromas, not much of a taste. Had it also on draft in Berlin, where it left a better impression, maybe because it was summer. Still, more interesting than some European lagers like Tuborg Green or American like Miller.
